i lorida Memorial University, one of the oldest academic centers in 
Florida, was founded in 1 879 as the Florida Baptist Institute in Live Oak, 
Florida. Soon after the American Baptist Home Mission gave its full support 
and the first regular school year began in 1 880. 



In 1882 the Florida Baptist Academy was established in Jacksonville, Florida. The 
name was later changed to Florida Normal and Industrial Institute. It was there that 
two brothers, James Weldon Johnson and J. Rosamond Johnson (faculty member), wrote 
the words and music to what has become known as the Negro National Anthem, 
"Lift Ev'ry Voice and Sing", in 1 990. 

In 1 91 8 the school moved to St. Augustine on part of 1 1 0-acre tract of land known 
as "Old Homes Plantation", formerly one of the largest slave plantations in 
Florida. University historians state that this is where the famous bell which now sits 
above the Susie C. Holley Chapel was purchased. The bell was originally used to 
gather slaves to issue daily orders. It was also stated that this bell was cast at the 
same foundry as the Liberty Bell which is enshrined in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. 



In 1941 the school in Live Oak and the school in St. Augustine merged, changing 
its limited offerings from a junior college classification to a four-year liberal arts insti- 
tution which graduated its first four-year class in 1945. The College's name was 
changed in 1950 to Florida Normal and Industrial Memorial College. In 1963 the 
charter was again amended to change the name to Florida Memorial College. In 
1 968 the College relocated to its present site in Northwest Miami and by 1 972 
graduated its first class at the Miami site. Florida Memorial College celebrated its 
1 00 lh anniversary in 1 979 and began a series of expansion projects on the 44-acre site. 



In 1 993 Dr. Albert E. Smith was appointed as the College's tenth president, heralding 
another period of growth in the institution's rich history. In December 2004, the insti- 
tution's name was changed to Florida Memorial University with the announcement 
being made at the Founders' Convocation in March 2005. On July 3, 2006, 
Dr. Karl S. Wright became the eleventh President of Florida Memorial University. 
On August 1 1 , 2009, the Florida Memorial University Board of Trustees appointed 
Sandra T. Thompson, Ph.D. the interim President of Florida Memorial University.

Ms. Ebony F. Johnson 



"The true purpose of life is to have a life of purpose" 
Dare to dream for within you is the power to make it a reality. 
My reality set in on October 1 0, 2009 as I embarked upon 
the new and exciting journey as Miss Florida Memorial 
University 2009-2010. 



After having the opportunity to experience such a memorable 

year, how do I summarize my cherished memories and 

express my vote of thanks on one mere page? In retrospect, 

my reign has been equivalent to that of a roller coaster ride 

filled with great surprises, humbling moments and making 

new acquaintances. It feels as though it was just yesterday 

that I attended events including the Leadership Kings and 

Queens' Conference in North Carolina, National Association of Student Affairs Professionals in Maryland, 

Convocation, my Coronation & Junkanoo Ball, Queens' Week, Heritage Tour, College Fair in the Bahamas, 

Martin Luther King Jr. Parades, Homecoming and B.E.E.P. While there were countless other activities not 

mentioned, I am forever grateful to have participated and those moments will remain etched in my memory. 

As I prepare to conclude my tenure here at Florida Memorial University, I can walk away with the confi- 
dence and reassurance that my college experience was simply a life changing one. It was God's purpose 
that I was elected to serve in the capacity as your queen and I say a heartfelt thank you to my fellow peers 
for believing in my ability to be your official female representative and ambassador. I wish you all continued 
success in your matriculation at our fine institution and future endeavors. 

I must extend my sincerest gratitude to my Royal Court. My reign would not have been a success without 
your dedication and cooperation! To my Advisor, Ms. Lois Johnson, Mrs. Yvonne Bendross, Faculty & Staff, 
SGA, Personal Assistants, Bahamian Connection and the ladies of the "Immaculate" Delta Eta Chapter of 
Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc., thank you is an underestimation for the hard work, contributions, support, 
and encouragement you offered me throughout the year. Your efforts have not gone unnoticed and I could- 
n't ask for a better team. 

As my voyage comes to an end, one now begins for another young lady. As I pass the torch onto my 
successor, I say, remember to stay true to yourself and the task that you now undertake. Lead by example 
and know that you now represent and embody the leadership, character and service that a Florida Memorial 
Lioness should possess. Maintain dignity, professionalism, elegance, grace and humility in all you do and 
wherever your reign takes you. 

It was my distinct pleasure to have been of service to you. To my illustrious Florida Memorial family, 

THANK YOU ! ! ! Continue to let your Lion Pride shine as we Roar, Roar and Roar some more Today, 

Tomorrow and Forever More! God bless you all !

A Chajye Tc The (jmdMt/ny 
Class cffZOW 

For many of you who began college four to five years ago, the path to graduation seemed an 
unattainable goal, beginning a new life became stressful, the academic transition from high school to 
college was different, adjusting to new roommates and people from different cultures were nearly impossible. 
For some, family problems and financial constraints were indestructible sign posts on the road to success. 
Sad, but has to be said, many dropped out of college, others took jobs that paid minimum wages; some 
associated themselves with bad companies and unhealthy habits and as a result have extended their 

m expected year of graduation to a year they have not decided yet. 
However, a great applause and gracious words of good wishes have to be given to those who have 
made it this far. The hopes and visions they saw years ago have come true. I can boldly perceive that on 
the day of graduation, tears of joy will run through the cheeks of several students as they walk for their 
diplomas. On a personal note, I will like to congratulate you for your hard work, your dedication and 
passionate effort towards excellence, and your special discipline to time management. In the words of 
Apostle Paul, "You have fought the good fight, you have finished the race and you have remained 
faithful." Now what awaits you is a world full of opportunities as well as challenges. As you continue life 
after undergraduate studies, let the bible be your guide and prayer a good habit. In all your ways, trust 
in God, be faithful and he shall always come to your rescue. 

Of all the inspirational words of Thomas Edison, perhaps the finest is "There is no substitute for hard 
work." Don't let 2010 be an end to itself but a means to an end. Continue the pursuit of excellence 
through more academic journeys, sow seeds of thoughtfulness and kindness in the hearts of those who 

desperately need them, make your school Florida Memorial University proud, and above all, be a blessing 
to the world you live in. 

My encouragement to you is to let the flame of success shine brightly in your path, let faith in God 
and confidence in yourself be precious nuggets of gold laid calmly in your heart, refuse to doubt your 
abilities, it doesn't matter how many times you fall, keep rising, let your priority be to fight giants, climb 
mountains, cross oceans and conquer armies in great battles, above all, let the school's values 
Leadership, Character and Service guide you into a peaceful and humble life of exploits. 



CONGRATULATIONS once again, you made it and the staff of The Arch Yearbook and Lion's Tale 
newspaper applauds you for your good work done.

"Success is not measured by what you accomplish but by the opposition you have encountered, and 
the courage with which you have maintained the struggle against overwhelming odds." 

Orison Swett Marden 

These college years have been a challenge indeed. But finally we 
can all say that we have persevered and achieved, and our time here 
at Florida Memorial University is quickly winding down. A professor of 
mine made a comment that stuck with me throughout this past year. 
She spoke of our responsibility as students to recognize progressive 
education as a gift, not just any gift but one to be realized and 
taken full advantage of. You my fellow graduates have surely done 
Ms. Patnshka g. Duncombe so. I could not think of a better group of people with, and from, 

Senior Class President 

whom to grow, learn and fellowship. 

To the faculty and staff- thank you! Thank you for believing in us even when we didn't believe in 
ourselves. Your words of advice did not go unheard and your careful assistance did not go unnoticed. In 
due time well understand! We love you! To the officers and members of administration, thank you for 
your calm wisdom. You steered us in the right direction even though we could not see as clearly as you 
could. To the students of Florida Memorial University, the ones who made this journey all the more 
memorable, we will surely miss you. Finally, to the members of the Senior Class, I urge you to follow 
your dreams and aim to shoot beyond the stars. View our graduation, not as the end, not as the 
beginning, but as the end of the beginning, for there will be many more battles and feats. 

Much can be said about the founding men and women who decided on that glorious day in 1 879 
to open its doors to Negro students and form Florida Memorial University. They had dreamed of a day 
when young men and women could receive a proper education and go into the world equipped. Well, 
once again, 1 30 graduating classes later, the dream has been defined. We celebrate the achievements, 
the years, the struggles that have brought us here, because now we know that we are equipped for 
even bigger and better things to come.

Webster Lewis, John Slade, Lonnie Spruill, Michael Williams, and Baron Willis formed 
what is now the fifth largest predominately African American Fraternity in the United 
States: lota Phi Theta Fraternity, Inc. Our founders were unique because they were non- 
traditional students and 3-5 years older then the average college student. Some were 
married, some were veterans, and some even held full-time jobs while attending college 
to earn a degree. This led to the concept of a "fraternity" that was vision... a vision 
of lota Phi Theta. The motto of the fraternity is "Building on a Tradition, Not Resting 
on One."

Fraternity. This event occurred in the office of Biology Professor Ernest E. Just,

arts students were Edgar A. Love, Oscar J, Cooper and Frank Coleman. 

From the initials of the Greek phrase meaning "friendship is essential to the soul," the 
name Omega Psi Phi was derived. The phrase was selected as the motto. Manhood, 
scholarship, perseverance and uplift were adopted as cardinal principles.

A 



Delta Sigma Theta Sorority 

was founded on January 13, 1913'" 

by twenty-two collegiate women at 

Howard University. These students wanted 

to use their collective strength to promote 

academic excellence and to provide assistance to 

persons in need. The first public act performed by the 

Delta Founders involved their participation in the 

Women's Suffrage March in Washington D.C., March 1913. 

Delta Sigma Theta was incorporated in 1930.
